Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Tonight's GD trivia question

A dozen E72 questions are enough, so...

At what three shows were the most new songs debuted? For extra bonus points, which songs were debuted at each show?

NOTE: To rule out shows with weird setlists like the Beach Boys show, let's stipulate that the songs be ones that became staples for at least the next year or so and/or were released commercially.

RULES: from memory--no peeking anywhere. And songs have lyrics.

(I think I know the answer to this question, but I'll be interested to hear if there are any such shows that I haven't thought of.)

1971-02-18 - Capitol Theater

Wharf Rat, Bertha, maybe PITB, and I think there's a couple more


1973-02-09 Roscoe Maples Pavilion (one of my fav shows)

Eyes, Row Jimmy, China Doll, and I know there's a few more

We had a thread discussing this a while back. Seems like when they broke out a bunch of Workingman's Dead is a contender, so is the Fall of 71, Kieth's first show. Without peeking, I'm only guessing 11/8/70 or 12/8/70. Or something like 9/24/71?

Congratulations to both of you for not peeking.

rdenirojb87's got two of the three shows and some of the songs for each show.

Hmmm...Keith's first show...now when was that? And what songs might have been debuted then?

Ok, I had to peek at Keith's first show... I think I was right about that, but the date I guessed 9/24/71 is the date Skullfuck was released, according to my Deadbase. He began rehearsing the next week and his first show sure had a lot of new songs.. but seeing as how I peeked, shouldn't give it away in case someone is still playing. Good brain training, Lou.

8-13-75 did debut The Music Never Stopped and I think the lyrics of Help on the Way, but its novelty was undercut by the Kezar show in March debuting Blues for Allah (with lyrics I think) and the 6-17-75 benefit debuting Crazy Fingers and Franklin's Tower.
